Thanks on both counts, Chaoswolf!   It's going to be an interesting first game, as this time everyone knows wha they're doing.  Last time we were all pretty clueless as to best strategies and tactics starting off. :)

Thanks, Chaoshead! Glad to hear you enjoyed the LL scenarios you did. Reading through the scenarios, it looks like we will have some real challenges ahead of us!

I have written a small back story for my new wizard as well.....not near the literary masterpiece that Chris produced (If Joe does another book of Frostgrave short stories, he should solicit Chris for an entry).

Really looking forward to the new campaign season.  It should prove to be quite enjoyable.

 

Hope you enjoy it.

Super introduction, Knabe! And that's a great photo of the two characters that you did. It really looks like they're interacting with each other. And I like the matching hats and orbs.

 

Can we assume from his love of books and scrolls that Bemis is a Sigilist also?

 

I'll be interested to see how that Captain works out for you.

 

And thank you very much for the kind words regarding my prologue story.

@Knabe  --  Good intro sir. Good luck in your adventures in the frozen city.  

 

Where is that little kid magic user from?!?!?  That is a really nice little mini!

And Bemis learned about the Frozen City by reading of the exploits of a famous druid. Hmmm, wonder who that could be? ;=)

A lovely intro! Looking forward to seeing how the captain works out for you. Any chance we'll get a sneak peek of the whole group before the gaming updates start coming?

Incidentally, we still haven't seen David's band...

Thanks for the comment guys.

 

Chris - Yes, being a book lover, Bemis is a Sigilist.  If only he had time enough to read.....

 

Chaoshead - The kid is from Reaper's Adventuring Kids blister

 

Pippin - Couldn't reisist a Knabe reference ::D:  I'll try and get the whole gang together and post a pic tomorrow

Fine. Since you asked for it. Here it is.

 

A reminder that you asked for it. ::P:

That was very good.  You captured the personalities and I could even hear the appropriate actor's voices in my mind as I read it.  :)

It's a lot easier when you can rely on that for a story! Thinking about keeping the War Doctor as the PoV for my write ups.

      Go to this site, and post  the first character you generate!

       
      I'm curious how many of you survive...
    • By Pingo
      Last year PingosHusband, after noodling around Exalted (2nd edition) and World of Darkness rulebooks (Vampire the Masquerade 2nd edition, Werewolf the Apocalypse, Mage the Ascension, etc.), announced that he'd like to run an Exalted game set in the World of Darkness.
       
      We, his friends and loved ones, said “What, are you crazy? Have we not long joked about how unplayable and internally inconsistent the World of Darkness is; how its timeline makes no sense and its rules and worldbuilding are buried and often mutually contradictory; how foolish and suicidally incurious the various groups are regarding each other; and how so many of its many tragic angsty world-destroying problems could be solved if only each isolated group got its head out of its backside and actually talked to one of the others?”
       
      He said, “Hear me out,” and since we have long experience of his keen ability to run entertaining campaigns, we heard him out.
       
      See, PingosHusband has a knack rather like Alan Moore's ability to take unpromising old third rate comic book series and turn them into fascinating multifaceted mythic dynamos, or Neil Gaiman's ability to mine world mythology to create astounding and consistent and multilayered worlds, or James Burke or Kenneth Hite’s ability to take fascinating historical and technological developments and spin them into stories of human interconnectivity or disturbingly deep illuminati conspiracies for game use, respectively.
       
      More than once PingosHusband has taken historical oddments, played “What happens if this is taken seriously and assumed to make sense somehow?” and produced some wonderful story or game setting or world.
       
      (One of them won awards.)
       
      So apparently he did this with Exalted and World of Darkness, getting under the hood, finding the core of what worked and what didn’t, seeing what could be connected to what else and what made sense, what was clearly absurd, what needed tweaking, what could be fun, what couldn’t be possible, why things happened, and who could have done them. He looked keenly at characters, places and situations, saw potential for fun in a campaign, wrote up background, and presented us with an introductory players’ handout.
       
      I’ll get to particulars later. The simple version is that the world looks basically like the World of Darkness, except that all of a sudden a tiny number of people have Exalted with memories of the world of Exalted (“Creation”) and powers derived from it. There are five to begin with (the PCs), although more will come soon enough.
       
      I have to say, this game has so far been tremendous fun. Our group has been playing together for over thirty years and I have rarely seen all of us this excited about a game. Our teenage / adult children are also involved and we have been having vivid family conversations over meals about history, strategy, and characters.
       
      I’ve (of course) been painting up miniatures for the game. I’m having a lot of fun with these too. I’ll put links to Show Off threads when I have them up.

      After almost a year of work, I've finally completed this piece. 2 hours each on the adventurers, about an hour each on the terrain pieces, and close to 6 hours on the dragon itself. A lot of different colors used, so I'm not even going to try to mention them all. The terrain is mostly dry brushed, and washes. The dragon has no dry brushing at all though. Everything else is either layered or blended painting. Thanks for looking! Enjoy! (And yes, that is my YouTube channel in the background. LOL)

      Hi, this is project of my friend, she is a talented artist.
      I`ll be glad for your help to make this project to life.
       
      Kickstarter

    • By Pingo
      Inspired by this post by Darsc Zacal, I'm starting a new game, "What Mini Am I Anyway?" Anyone can participate.
       
      The idea seems to be to see if you can identify a miniature from its silhouette and possibly some clues.  Thematic groups are not required, but can add to the fun.
       
      This is the image that spurred the idea:

       
      Clues:  This is a party of PCs in a game loosely (very loosely) based on White Wolf's World of Darkness.  Two figures are from Reaper; I mentioned the sources of two of the other figures on these forums last month.  One figure has been modified by the removal of a weapon.
       
      Players are encouraged to identify the figures by company, name (if any) and SKU number (if any).  Prizes are, um, the respect of your awesome detectoring skills and "Likes".
